Filer image element

June is Pride Month!

We're celebrating Pride Month by exploring stories featuring lesbian, gay, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and nonbinary voices, plus others whose identities are not captured by the LGBTQIA acronym. Check the KBTC broadcast schedule and a full slate of shows available on the free PBS App and on KBTC Passport. 

City Island Theme Song

City Island

At a time when our country feels divided and teachers and parents may find it challenging to discuss civics and elections, PBS KIDS and KBTC are rolling out a full slate of age-appropriate civics-themed content! We're giving kids a place to go to learn about civics in an age-appropriate way and learn more about what’s happening around them. Watch for the second season of the hit shorts series, City Island, and two new music video series, City Island Sings and Together We Can, all launching this spring and summer! Check it out!

Juneteenth

Honoring Juneteenth

For more than one-and-a-half centuries, the Juneteenth holiday has been sacred to many Black communities. It marks the day in 1865 enslaved people in Galveston, Texas found out they had been freed — after the end of the Civil war, and two years after President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. We invite you to celebrate and honor Juneteenth with us!
